Yeh shehar hai bada, iss main bheed kuch zyada.
har chehre dekh liya, koi tera na tha
Yeh shehar hai bada, isa main raastey hazaar
pairon pe nayi rekhaye phir bhi banaye roz do-chaar
Yeh shehar hai bada, logon se bhara veerana
sab hai bhagtey, poochey kissey pata kaisey bata
Yeh shehar hai bada, kaisey karloon main wafah
saans lene ki nahin foorsat, muskurata koi kahan
Kyon humne ek pal nazar milali?
Kyon humne ek shararat bhari hansi baantli?
Kyon humne us lamhey main dil ko dhadakne diya?
Yeh shehar hai bada, isa main kahan pyaar ki jagah
Yeh shehar hai bada, isa main dooriyan hi hai nazdikiyan
Just a take on the fast and fleeting life we lead today, searching for love and socializing over computer screens, and isolating ourselves with music or phone stuck to the ear, giving no chance for a real conversation. All the time forgetting to take that chance to have a cup of coffee, and spoken words while really looking into his/her eyes.
And No, I am NOT that old! 😉
